  • 2 pounds carrots, peeled and cut into sticks
  • ¼ cup butter
  • ¼ cup packed brown sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground white pepper


  • Place carrots into a large saucepan, pour in enough water to reach depth of 1 inch, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer carrots until tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain and transfer to a bowl.
  • Melt butter in the same saucepan; stir brown sugar, salt, and white pepper into butter until brown sugar and salt have dissolved. Transfer carrots into brown sugar sauce; cook and stir until carrots are glazed with sauce, about 5 more minutes.
